Chelsea ace Cesc Fabregas has pulled out of the Spanish international squad for their upcoming matches with Belarus and Germany, reports the club’s official website.
The Spanish Football Federation released this statement earlier today:
“The Chelsea midfielder has been ruled out for the games against Belarus and Germany following tests and an evaluation of his condition that was carried out this morning by the medical staff of the Spanish national team.
“The MRI done this morning in the Sanitas Clinic in La Moraleja (Madrid) showed a clear improvement with respect to the one done by his club on Sunday.
“Although the MRI discards a hamstring tear, the player continues to have discomfort and the medical team considers that his involvement in the next games would not be advisable for his complete recovery.”
As a result, Fabregas will stay with Chelsea and work with his club’s physios to alleviate the problem, and hopefully be ready in time for the Blues’ next fixture with West Brom after the international break.
Chelsea fans will be desperate for the playmaker to make a quick and full recovery, such has been his creative influence since completing a £27m move to Stamford Bridge during the summer.
In 11 appearances so far, Fabregas has bagged twice, and supplied 11 assists for his teammates, more than any other player in Europe bar Lionel Messi.
While Fabregas is key to Spain, they have more than enough creative midfielders capable of covering for him – with Isco, Juan Mata, David Silva, Andres Iniesta and Koke all vying for places.
